Thinking ahead again...this time to Halloween! This card was done with an acrylic stamp set from Hamp-ton Art for Doodlebug, and the bat is from the Doodlebug Cuttlebug (it's all about the bug!) Halloween die (I backed the eyes with a scrap of orange cs and lifted his wings for dimension). The card base was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and then decorated with dp from Cloud 9 (I think from their cat line, but can't recall the official collection name right now). The house was shaded with SU watercolor crayons and the windows made glassy with SU's Crystal Effects. "Bit off" the corners of each layer of the matted house and added Making Memories brads. I used my big old "antique" (the original!) Sizzix machine with the circle die (4 sizes), sponged distress ink on each of them, and paper-pierced the left side of 3. Finally, I bundled up some lengths of ric-rac and glue-dotted them to the circles then finished it off with Stardust Stickles in the letters. Thanks for celebrating early with me and have a wonderful weekend!
